On Monday, June 1, at 6:00 pm ET, Dr. Marty Makary will take the affirmative, and Dr. Knut M. Wittkowski the negative, on the debate resolution, The lockdown has saved hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of lives and spared American hospitals the horrors of rationing care.

Dr. Marty Makary is a surgeon and professor of health policy at the Johns Hopkins School of Public Health, and author of The Price We Pay: What Broke American Health Care — and How to Fix It.

Dr. Knut Wittkowski is currently the CEO of ASDERA LLC, a company discovering novel treatments for complex diseases from data of genome-wide association studies. He served for 20 years as head of the Department of Biostatistics, Epidemiology, and Research Design at The Rockefeller University in New York.
